Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson was forced into action during this postseason because of numerous injuries to three starters.

He responded well, averaging 16.3 points in 33.7 minutes in 12 playoff games.

It might be his last appearance with the team, according to Comcast SportsNet Chicago. Robinson will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason after making $1,146,337 this past season. Robinson has indicated that he would like to return to the team but knows there is “limited space.”

From CSN Chicago:

However, with Rose’s expected return next season, Hinrich having another deal on his contract and rookie point guard Marquis Teague needing at least the opportunity to develop in game situations, it’s unlikely that next season will be in Chicago for the instant-offense scorer and fan favorite.

If it was up to Robinson, though, the little man with the big heart would be back in the Windy City.

“I would love to. Honestly, I really would, but knowing the guys we have here, I know it’s probably limited space for me. But we’ll see how it goes. Talk to my agent and stuff like that and figure out what’s the best plan for me,” the loquacious speedster said. “I love this team, I love these guys and if I could stay here, it would be wonderful.”
